International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction

The third International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction (SI) will take place in Helsinki on the 30th and 31st of October 2014.Organised by the MindSee project consortium, the workshop brings together researchers and practitioners interested in investigating a novel generation of symbiotic relationships between humans and computers . Symbiotic interaction can be achieved combining computation, sensing technology and interaction design to realise deep perception, awareness and understanding between humans and computers . Important aspects to implement are transparency, reciprocity and collaborative use of resources across both computers and humans. The Symbiotic relationship is also characterised by  goal and agency independence of humans and computers.

We invite researchers from different disciplines such as computational science, engineering, psychology, and design to contribute to the emergent field of study  of Symbiotic Interaction.

Contributions include Research Papers (12 pages)  or Posters and Demos (6 pages)  that  contribute to an emergent community investigating Symbiotic Interaction as a future paradigm with theories and conceptual frameworks, experiments and user studies, technologies, systems, applications, design driven research.

The proceedings will be published in LNCS Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
